Due to continuous and tougher federal environmental regulations, original equipment manufacturers have been forced to design engines with much tighter tolerances. These strict performance demands require motor oils to provide lubrication within much more difficult operating environments. Conventional motor oils simply wont be up to the task in protecting expensive engines that are called on to work harder, longer, and in much more extreme conditions than they were in the past. Only the finest quality motor oils with the heaviest duty additive chemistry will be able to provide the necessary lubrication protection for modern day diesel engines. 15W40 CJ-4 Oil offers the necessary performance required in protecting hard working diesel engines.
Conventional CJ-4 engine oils are no match for 15W40 CJ-4 Oil. This engine oil will give an extra level of performance to over-the-road equipment with low emission diesel engines that have after treatment accessories that require a CJ-4 motor oil, and for over-the-road pre-2007 diesel motors. Also, it is specified for off-highway Tier 4 diesel motors and for off-highway diesel powered heavy equipment that are pre-Tier 4.
Now that ultra low sulfur diesel fuel (15ppm) is standard fare for both off-highway and on-highway equipment, the majority of OEMs have felt the need to specify lower Total Base Number (TBN) requirements for their specified motor oils. Their assumption is based on a feeling that with the lower sulfur content of current diesel fuels, there is no need for higher TBN specified engine oils. After endless tests and many successful years of in-the-field usage, our experienced chemists feel that in fact the accumulated data offers proof that utilizing higher TBN and superior TBN retention are still critically vital to fighting the ever increasing acidity that develops in engines that utilize SCR and EGR technology devices.
For those owner/operators looking to keep their hard working diesel motors functioning at peak performance, a superior motor oil will be required. 15W40 CJ-4 Oil is the engine oil of choice. Expect our robust TBN stay the same over a long period of time. This engine oil’s ability to retain its high TBN number makes it a standout superior engine oil. The key to keeping an engine healthy has to start with utilizing a heavy duty engine oil formulated with a healthy dosage of superior engine oil additives. This high-quality engine oil gives you a high TBN, which will work overtime at neutralizing destructive acids.
It is important that an engine oil resist acidification and thickening when exposed to extreme high temperatures. If an engine oil is left to thicken, this can lead to early motor failure and the loss of performance. 15W40 CJ-4 Oil contains a healthy dosage of antioxidants that were especially selected because of their ability to neutralize acids and to resist any engine oil thickening when exposed to high temps.
When a diesel motor is in operation, there are catalysts present like oxygen and heat during combustion that create dangerous chemical reactions. These chemical reactions can cause the oil to darken and degrade, which unfortunately leads to the creation of destructive and corrosive acids. These damaging acids combine with other contaminants that form sludge that is insoluble, which in turn causes motor oils to thicken and finally creating unwanted deposits on the pistons, robbing the engine of power, efficiency, and performance. In other words, these detrimental reactions during diesel engine operation causes an engine oil to oxidize or break down slowly, leading to a motor oil’s life being shortened and weakening its ability to protect critical engine parts, which may lead to early motor failure. Today’s modern engines require a high performance motor oil that can withstand the extreme operating conditions that today’s engines are forced to operate in. Such an engine oil is 15W40 CJ-4 Oil. Its state-of-the-art chemistry is engineered to deliver powerful detergency and superior antioxidant capabilities working in unison to control damaging soot, neutralization of acids, a reduction in the consumption of oil, and the ability to keep the internal engine clean.
15W40 CJ-4 Oil contains much higher concentrations of anti-friction and anti-wear additives versus conventional engine oils. The goal was to effectively reduce friction and wear during extreme operating conditions. These reductions lead to increased fuel economy, improved engine efficiency, longer component life, less downtime, and dollar savings.
Comes in quarts, 1 gallon jugs, 35 gallon drums, and 55 gallon drums.
